  1. Nick Schwab's rating of the film Shortwave

    Like the modern masterpiece, The Invitation, that it shares in producers, Shortwave is a chamber-drama merged with psychological horror. Yet, despite chic visuals and an emphasis on character, like A24's iffier output, it isn't always strong in emotional pathos due to a lack of dramatic urgency. When the more thrilling parts of the plot arise, it becomes confused, ultimately feeling uneven in emotions and meaning.
